SOURCE: causes for overheating in a 1997 oldsmobile aurora

Do the fan(s) come on when hot? Blow out the radiator core with compressed air (from the engine side) to clear it of bugs and other debris. Make sure the radiator is full to the top (when cold) and check the radiator cap seal rubber and the over-flow tank and tubing for leakage. It's possible that the water pump impeller is slipping on it's shaft and not pumping water properly. Remove the thermostat temporarily and remove the radiator cap. Remove some of the water so that the level is somewhat below the cap bottom, then start the engine and watch for rapidly moving water. That will show that the pump is moving water well. Allow the engine to heat up and keep track of the water movement. Shut the engine off at low end of 'normal' on the temp gauge and replace the cap so that it doesn't blow out boiling water into your face. Replace the thermostat and top up the water when cold again.

Yes, the head gaskets can be replaced without removing the engine.

If you will indicate which engine your Oldsmobile is equipped with, I will post the procedure.

I have a 1999 oldsmobile that keeps overheating i had the radiator the thermostat the water pump and top hose replaced not used but brand new a broken head gasket has been ruled out i need help asap

Check hand brake is fully released. Why head gasket had been ruled out ? Run engine till warm, carefully open rad cap, let engine idle, look for BUBBLES IN COOLANT. IF YOU SEE ANY NO MATTER HOW SMALL, CHANGE HEAD GASKET.

Blown head gasket 2001 oldsmobile aurora

IF it was any gasket issue you would be losing coolant or getting air into the coolant, usually causing it to overflow. You have not said any of these things, so I would suspect this is an issue with the fluid not moving through the engine, either because it is blocked, or because the water pump is not moving it.

I paid for a radiator, water pump, thermostat, and heater core to be put on my 2001 aurora and the engine is still bubbling I got an engine block test done and it was okay. Three Mechanics have tryed to...

does your cooling system hold pressure when it is hot? Is there the chance that either your surge tank or radiator cap is defective? It has to hold pressure when hot to function properly, and without a thermostat you will have issues with the car operating in open loop, causing damage to the engine and catalytic converter, not to mention possibly not getting heat in cold weather. You are aware that these engines (called 'shortstars') have issues with head gaskets-was it recently overheated. and is that why all this work was done? I have a 2001 Aurora with a 4.0, you have to watch the coolant level like a hawk on these engines (and on the 3.5, a sawed-off 4.0, I have one of them too, a 2000 Intrigue). If you are getting air pumped into the surge tank, you have a head gasket issue, or a cracked/warped head)-check your fluid level when the engine is cold, like after it sat overnight-fill it SLIGHTLY above the full cold mark, and start it, let it run with the coolant cap off until it gets to normal operation temp (half way up)-you may have a hard time getting it hot enough though, without the thermostat. Once at full operating temp. make certain the level is again SLIGHTLY above the full mark on the surge tank. If you are getting bubbles at this point, your block is not the issue, but the all too common head gasket(s) are-good luck, and if you get new head gaskets done, make certain you are using new bolts for the heads.

I was told my cross over pipe gasket in my 98 aurora was leaking and that is the cause of my car over heating i was wondering if there was anybody that can give instructions on how to make the repair i am...

Take a good look at it. I believe this is a 4L engine, right? I had a similar issue on a 2001 Aurora, I believe same (or close) engine. I was told the cross-over was leaking and didn't want to get into it. (On the drivers side of the engine under the throttle body. You will see a big radiator hose connect to it. Well I left it go and the real issue was a leaking water pump bearing. It finally froze up on me and burned the belt and pulley driving it. The water pump replacement was not hard, just need a special tool to remove and replace. I rented one from Autozone. Anyway, I would start with the water pump and look at the gasket on the cross over to see if you can tell if it's really bad. Removing the air intake and throttle body helps getting to these parts.

My car is over heating when im going down the hwy

May have head gasket leak. If so will be loosing water, possibly quite slowly. At highway speeds cylinder pressure is higher and so gasket leak more likely. Means gasket damage or loose cylinder head. Can be checked by mechanic. (pressure test and cylinder head bolt tension test)
Less likely alternatives, the spark timing is too advanced or the fuel too poor.

Volkswagon polo p reg engine overheating and coolant leaking also heating is not working.

hi, its a good chance the head gasket has gone and also the thermostat will need checking and also the water pump.
if the water pump or the thermostat failed then this would cause the engine to over heat and blow the head gasket.

If your doing the work yourself then get a workshop manual as you will need it for the head bolt sequence and also the torque settings and timing marks for the timing belt.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Head gasket repair on the v 8 4.0 engine is it hard to do?

Very difficult, especially if you have never done one. This requires high precision tools and mechanical capabilities. You are advised to leave this one up to the professionals. Believe me, I still remember MY first headgasket and it drove me crazy back in 1969. Okay, yes, I'm getting old. Thanks, Dana.
